1. San Francisco Walks & Hikes - Photos

Mosaic Stairs in San Francisco

Photos of self-guided walks throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area. If you came to San Francisco with the intent to just walk, you'd have days of discovery and enjoyment. Unlike hot climates where summer heat makes walking prohibitive . . . or rainy climes where duckies and mud might be the norm . . . San Francisco's weather is an ideal blend of clear days and subsequent, cooling fog.

2. San Francisco Neighborhood Photos

Although the precise delineations can be hazy, the ethnic and demographic distinctions are often vivid . . . between the Mission and the Marina, between the Outer Sunset and North Beach.
